Utah ATM robbery botched despite use of stolen ‘heavy equipment’ to smash machine, police say

A group of thieves in Utah failed to make off with an ATM early Saturday despite smashing the money machine to pieces with stolen “heavy equipment,” investigators said.

The botched robbery unfolded at a Wells Fargo Bank just after 4 a.m. in Hurricane, a city in southwestern Utah, police said in a news release.

The suspects triggered several thousand dollars in damage in their attempt to rip out the ATM using a stolen truck, a trailer and heavy equipment, cops said. They did not elaborate on what the “heavy equipment” exactly was.

Unable to remove the machine, the suspects sped away and crashed the truck a short distance from the bank, police said. Despite efforts from officers and K-9s to search the area, they did not immediately find any suspects.

Detectives were following several leads as part of the ongoing investigation, according to the department.

Meanwhile, all the stolen property was recovered at the crash site and returned to its respective owners.

Jeanine Pirro to Mitt Romney: ‘How about you get the hell out of the United States Senate?’

Judge Jeanine Pirro minced no words Saturday in slamming Sen. Mitt Romney for being the sole Republican voting to convict President Trump during last week’s Senate impeachment trial.

Pirro claimed that Romney — the 2012 Republican presidential nominee from Utah, who lost to Barack Obama that year — voted the way he did out of jealousy of Trump, who was able to win the White House for the GOP four years later.

“Permit me to introduce you to a non-leader,” Pirro said on “Justice with Judge Jeanine.” “The first United States senator in American history to vote to convict the president of his own party — Mitt Romney, the sole and only Republican to vote to convict President Trump.

ROMNEY ANNOUNCES HE WILL VOTE TO CONVICT TRUMP IN IMPEACHMENT TRIAL

“How dare he!” she added. “How could he? And why would he?”

Pirro also criticized Romney and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for invoking their faith while criticizing the president.

“Do you ever wonder why people never mention God or religion — only bring it up when they get caught doing something or when they need an excuse for something they did?” Pirro asked. “What a bunch of phonies.”

“Do you ever wonder why people never mention God or religion — only bring it up when they get caught doing something or when they need an excuse for something they did? What a bunch of phonies.”

— Judge Jeanine Pirro

Pirro pulled no punches, calling Romney an “embarrassment.”

“Your jealousy of this man [Trump] is a constant rage burning within you because you can never rise to the heights that he has,” Pirro said. “Because guys like you fold like wusses and you don’t have any selflessness or the ability to think about others, as Donald Trump has thought about making America first.”

The host called on Romney to resign from office and ripped his attempt to win over the “Trump-hating left.”

“How about you get the hell out of the United States Senate?” Pirro said. “The people in Utah are furious with you, and your dream of endearing yourself to the Trump-hating left is a joke.”

Swipe at Romney? Utah lawmaker introduces bill to recall US senators

Republican Utah state Rep. Tim Quinn has introduced a bill in that state’s legislature that would allow voters to recall U.S. senators — a possible swipe at Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, despite Quinn saying the bill isn’t targeted at anyone in particular.

First reported by Deseret News, the bill would create a process by which a recall vote could go on the ballot after a petition by voters.

“I know that’s what’s going to be the narrative,” Quinn told the Deseret News when asked if the bill was aimed at Romney, the sitting GOP senator whose current term doesn’t expire until 2025. “If it were, then it might make sense to have a sunset on it. That would not be the case.”

Utah state Rep. Tim Quinn introduced H.B. 217, legislation that would allow the state’s voters to recall their senators in the middle of their terms.

SEAN HANNITY WARNS ROMNEY AS POLL SHOWS PITFALLS OF IMPEACHMENT WITNESS DRIVE

“Six years is a long time,” he said, according to the Deseret News.

Romney has been under pressure from Republicans for his seeming willingness to buck President Trump, especially amid impeachment proceedings. Specifically, Romney has been open to hearing witnesses in Trump’s Senate impeachment trial at a time when most Republicans are in favor of a fast acquittal of the president.

The proposed bar for putting a recall vote on a ballot is quite high, requiring the signatures of 25 percent of “the number of active voters in the state.” In addition, senators could not be recalled within the first year of their term, within a year of winning a recall election or within a year of the end of their term.

The bill, if passed, would likely face a constitutional challenge.

An Arkansas effort to impose term limits on its representatives was struck down by the Supreme Court in 1995, with the majority opinion saying that states are not authorized to add requirements for individuals to qualify for federal office — specifically, in that case, not having served in that body for a certain amount of time. Requiring senators to avoid a recall to keep their seats might run afoul of that same principle.

Puppy store investigated after ‘concerning’ video suggests puppies were drugged

Westlake Legal Group Puppy-Sleeping-iStock Puppy store investigated after 'concerning' video suggests puppies were drugged Gerren Keith Gaynor fox-news/us/us-regions/west/utah fox-news/lifestyle/pets fox news fnc/lifestyle fnc article 83f50c40-39e1-5ae4-800b-880c689a63a9

A puppy store in Utah is under investigation after a “concerning” video caused some to believe that the store’s puppies had been drugged.

Facebook user Austin Ewell posted the disturbing video on Friday, showing several dogs laid out at The Puppy Store.

YOU MAY BE WALKING YOUR DOG WRONG, PETA FOUNDER SAYS

“This dog is drugged,” Ewell said as he shook one puppy’s paw. “They’re all sedated. There’s no way … completely nonresponsive.”

At the end of the video, he also taps the glass to which another dog remained unresponsive.

Ewell explained on Facebook that he went to dinner nearby and decided to check out the puppies with his children.

“I don’t want to jump to conclusions, but something doesn’t seem right about this place. Here are some videos I posted to my Snapchat. What do you think?” he wrote.

The video, which has garnered 115,000 views, sparked strong reactions online. Many called on Ewell to contact the authorities, while others vowed to do so themselves.

Ewell said he contacted the West Jordan Police Department’s animal control division, which confirmed to Fox 13 that it opened an investigation into The Puppy Store.

“When we saw the video, we were concerned. The store owner declined any wrongdoing and the investigation continues,” West Jordan Police Sergeant J.C. Holt said. “We’re not sure what was going on. The store owner basically said, ‘The puppies were tired from a full day of attention and people playing with them.’”

The Puppy Store responded to public backlash in a statement posted on Facebook along with a video of energetic puppies.

“We do not drug or sedate our puppies,” the statement said. “We do however give our puppies vitamins and probiotics to improve on their fragile immune and digestive systems on a daily basis.”

Sgt. Holt said despite not being able to prove there had been any wrongdoing, the investigation would remain open.

“Still, you see the video. We are concerned over it,” he said. “The case is open, the case is active. We will continue to look into things and monitor that situation up there to make sure that there’s no wrongdoing going on.”

Utah becomes 19th state to ban LGBTQ conversion therapy on children under 18

Utah became the 19th and most conservative state to ban LGBTQ conversion therapy on children under 18 after a new rule went into effect Wednesday that now punishes medical experts for practicing the widely discredited method of attempting to change someone’s sexual orientation or gender identity.

HAWAII POISED TO BECOME NINTH STATE TO HAVE “GENDER X” AS AN OPTION ON DRIVER LICENSES

“Every reputable science-based organization in the country recognizes that conversion therapy is a dangerous fraud. It exacerbates depression, anxiety and suicide ideation,” Troy Williams, executive director of Equality Utah, told Fox 13 Salt Lake City. “We are grateful to Governor Herbert and the Board of Psychologists for acting swiftly on behalf of LGBTQ youth.”

Despite pushback from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which argued on Capitol Hill that the proposed ban violated religious freedom or parental rights, Gov. Gary Herbert, a Republican, ordered state regulators to move forward with an administrative rule against the practice.

The rule bypasses the state Legislature. Herbert also apologized to LGBTQ activists after the language of an initial bill, sponsored by state GOP Rep. Craig Hall, to ban conversion therapy in Utah was derailed.

“I have learned much through this process. The stories of youth who have endured these so-called therapies are heart-rending, and I’m grateful that we have found a way forward that will ban conversion therapy forever in our state,” the governor said in a November press conference.

Conversion therapy is a practice used to try to change sexual orientation or gender identity. Many people who have been through it said it deepened feelings of depression and increased thoughts of suicide. The new rule bans licensed Utah therapists from subjecting LGBTQ minors to the practice.

The American Psychological Association has said it is not based on science and is harmful to mental health. The Utah Psychological Association also spoke in favor of the ban.

Doctors or therapists who continue the practice could face sanctions or lose their licenses. It contains an exemption for clergy or religious counselors, The Salt Lake Tribune reported.

“Ultimately, this bill means to me that youth will be accepted and protected within our communities,” Nathan Dalley, a University of Utah student and survivor of conversion therapy, said at a Wednesday news conference, according to the Tribune.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Utah snowmobiler, 18, dies after avalanche buries him on trip with dad

A teen in Utah died Saturday after being buried under an avalanche for over an hour while snowmobiling with his father, who confessed “my strength availed nothing” in the race to save his son.

Chase Adams, 18, and his father, Ben, were snowmobiling in Farmington Canyon, located about 20 miles north of Salt Lake City, when they were caught in an avalanche around 1:30 p.m., the Davis County Sheriff’s Office said.

While Adams and his snowmobile were immediately buried under the debris, his father managed to escape. Ben Adams said he prayed while calling 911 and Chase’s mother.

“We spent the day at a location that is dear to me and my boys,” he said Sunday in a statement released through the sheriff’s office. “We had a wonderful day doing what we love to do. When the snow slid, I was shocked, but I had a feeling everything was going to be okay.”

Adams was wearing the necessary safety equipment: an avalanche beacon and inflatable backpack. He deployed the airbag in his backpack, but it did not float as intended, according to the sheriff’s office.

The avalanche, which was unintentionally triggered, buried Adams under at least six feet of snow, the Utah Avalanche Center said.

The debris piled up so high because the steep slope runs into the flat lake below without a transition, the Utah Avalanche Center said. (Davis County Sheriff’s Office)

Rescuers raced to the scene after receiving 911 calls. Within 70 minutes of the calls, rescuers located Chase, dug him out from the snow and airlifted him to a hospital, where he later died, the sheriff said.

UTAH SNOWBOARDER KILLED AFTER TRIGGERING ‘SIGNIFICANT’ AVALANCHE THAT BURIED HIM ALIVE

Ben Adams thanked rescuers, medical staff and other bystanders on the slope for their efforts.

“I am an extremely strong man and in the moment of physical need to save my son my strength availed nothing,” he said. “I was useless and shifted my strength to God. I relied on Him, knowing my nothingness and trusting His great power to give me strength to know that, someday, we will see each other again, by virtue of Jesus Christ.”

While what triggered the avalanche is still under investigation, officials told the Standard-Examiner that the recent fluctuation between snow and warm weather could have caused the slide.

Utah boy arrested after shooting that killed 4, injured 1 in same family, police say

A young male juvenile in Utah is accused of shooting and killing three children and a woman in Grantsville on Friday, and injuring a fifth victim who is now in the hospital, authorities said Saturday.

All of the victims are believed to be members of the shooter’s family, and the victims are all related, according to Deseret News. Initial reports said the accused is a teenager, but police have not released his name because he’s being charged as a minor.

The suspected shooter is reportedly facing 10 criminal charges, including aggravated homicide.

Grantsville Mayor Brent Marshall visited the scene to offer his condolences and said law enforcement is still trying to figure out what happened.

“It’s an unfortunate tragedy that has taken place here this evening,” he said Friday. “And I’m sure it will take days or even longer to try and piece together what brought all of this on and why it happened, if we ever get to know why it happened. It’s upsetting. This is normally a very quiet neighborhood, and any time you have children involved in something, it becomes very emotional, very fast.”

“We appreciate everybody’s thoughts and support,” Marshall added. “We ask that you continue to pray for the family and for these officers who are trying to figure out what happened.”

MINNESOTA MAN CHARGED WITH ATTEMPTED MURDER IN SHOOTING THAT CRITICALLY WOUNDED OFFICER

Gov. Gary Herbert also offered his condolences on Twitter, just after midnight on Saturday. He urged citizens to lock up their firearms and said only love can help heal the wounds created by the shooting.

“Our hearts are broken by the horrible news coming out Grantsville tonight. We mourn over the loss of innocent lives,” he wrote. “Parents and grandparents, secure your firearms! Everyone, hug your loved ones tight. And remember love, not hate, will heal broken individuals and families.”

Grantsville Police Cpl. Rhonda Fields told The Associated Press that authorities are at a loss when it comes to the motive and are still investigating.

“We’re trying to make certain that we verify people’s relationships among the deceased and the survivor,” she said. “As for motive, we don’t have any of that.”

Fields also said the fifth victim, who sustained a gunshot, is stable and expected to survive.

Rare ‘Martian’ mineral mounds appear in Utah’s Great Salt Lake

Mounds of a rare crystalline mineral emerged above the surface of Utah’s Great Salt Lake.

The four white mounds, which are up to 3 feet high and dozens of feet across, were first seen in October, according to a blog post by Utah State Parks officials.

After they tested the mounds, state geologists discovered that they are layered formations of a mineral known as mirabilite, a crystalline sodium sulfate.

However, the unique-looking mounds won’t be around forever.

“When temperatures rise above freezing, the impressive clear mirabilite crystals that form the mounds at the Great Salt Lake will dehydrate to form a white powdery mineral called thenardite (Na2SO4),” parks officials said. “As such, these mirabilite mounds will disappear with changing temperatures and the rising lake levels.”

Although mirabilite has not actually been found on Mars, scientists think ancient mound-like deposits of similar sulfate minerals could still contain some fossilized traces of ancient Martian microbes — hence the nickname “Martian” mounds.

Utah woman in Florida on a work trip has gone missing, Florida authorities say. Kelly Glover was last seen on hotel security footage in her pajamas, according to her husband.

“We are missing an amazing woman. We just need her home,” Kelly Glover’s husband, Adam Bremer, told reporters. “She’s got a sweet spirit and she’s a very sweet girl and she has a big heart. She’s a good person, an amazing wife. She’s my best friend.”

Glover, 37, of Holladay, Utah, had been staying with a friend at the Westin Fort Lauderdale. She was in Florida on a trip related to her job, FOX 13 of Salt Lake City reported.

“Her friend went to bed early,” Bremer said, according to Salt Lake City’s KSL-TV. “My wife was still up and her friend woke up around 4 a.m., and my wife was nowhere to be found and the door was left open.”

Bremer told reporters his wife left behind her phone and purse.

“She left it in the room and that’s the last we’ve seen of her,” he said, according to Miami’s WPLG-TV.

Bremer said hotel security footage shows Glover in her pajamas and socks in a back stairwell headed for an exit around 2 a.m. Thursday.

“As far as I know there is no evidence that she’s left the hotel,” her cousin, Ryan Glover, said, according to KSL.

He said he knew something was wrong when he hadn’t heard from her in the morning.

“She’s pretty responsive,” he said, KSL reported. “I usually get up before her and I send her the first message in the morning and not one morning has gone by where I haven’t heard from her by 9 o’clock.”

”I can confirm a report was made for the missing person, detectives are investigating and following up on any leads they get but have no other details other than she has not been recovered at this time,” Fort Lauderdale Police Department Detective Tracy Figone said, according to KSL.
